Insulin-Reducing Almond Snack for Reversing Diabetes

Insulin-Reducing Almond Snack
The recipe given below is a gift for the readers from Karen, one of my patients.
There is a global scourge of grease buildup on cell membranes – in all people, of all ages, in all regions of the body. In its wake, it brings along diabetes. I explain this further in my articles entitled “The Grease and Detergent Model of Diabetes” on this website. Cell membrane jams insulin receptor protein embedded in it such that the crank of hormone insulin cannot turn the crank-shaft of this protein – insulin resistance in the prevailing terminology. Excess insulin released by pancreas to overcome this resistance (hyperinsulinism) is fattening and inflaming. It is important to counter this insulin toxicity by lowering blood insulin levels by making right (insulin-reducing) dietary choices.
Below is a recipe offered by Karen, an astute observer and a thoughtful woman, who developed Type 1 diabetes more than 20 years ago.
